quilombo records 02.1

Putting out a quartet record with a front line of sax and trumpet should be a pretty straightforward rite of passage for young improvisers. Except that is if the musicians are members of Mold, the Danish/German band with American and Continental experience.

Not wanting to create yet another two-horns/two rhythm group, Mold constituted itself with one brass player, one woodwind player and two guitarists. To be honest, two of the players do add electronics, but such is their burgeoning collective talent that you probably won’t notice the lack of conventional rhythm section. MORE
